Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - COPD

COPD is preventable and treatable, yet its low profile and late presentation means that many people are not diagnosed until the disease has progressed to a moderate or severe stage, where interventions are less effective.

The education of all healthcare professionals is therefore essential in improving care for this patient group. It is not simply a disease of the airways; it also has cognitive and social aspects and if care is to be optimised, it needs to be approached holistically.

This book addresses a wide range of issues and includes a chapter on the patient's perspective, written by a patient, which gives useful insights. It merits a place in the healthcare library.

Contents include:

  • Pathological processes, aetiology and nautral history
  • The patient's perspective
  • Assessment and diagnosis
  • Pharmacological management of chronic disease
  • Managing an exacerbation in primary care
  • Management of respiratory failure caused by exacerbations
  • Smoking and smoking cessation
